Moving Well


Do you need to exercise every day? Which equipment should you use and in what order? Is cardio a must? Does faster mean better? Do I need a personal trainer? If you’re new to working out, it’s only natural to have a million and one questions in mind. Sure, your good friend Google can provide a lot of answers but which ones will get your body where you want it to be?

One of the benefits of having to hire a personal trainer is having someone who’s qualified and experienced who can provide the necessary information that works for your body type, composition, and goals. Trial and error may be a good teacher but wouldn’t you rather get it right, right from the start?

Devise an Action Plan

A personal trainer doesn’t just tell you what and how to exercise but how to do it in a safe way while also providing guidance on nutrition and overall well-being. You get the full package that is tailored to you, structured to complement your schedule and lifestyle. It’s like having an action plan that breaks your big goal into manageable bits, includes progress markers that you can track (and helps you stay on track), and gives you a foreseeable end that makes it worth your while.


Accountability & Motivation

So you have a plan in place … now how will you activate it and keep it going? Enter your personal trainer, who doubles up as your disciplinarian, cheerleader, gym buddy, therapist, adviser, supporter – whatever role that works to motivate you to last the distance, the voice of reason who will remind you why you signed up for it in the first place. In other words, a personal trainer will hold you accountable for your goals.


Troubleshoot Fitness Plateau Quickly and Safely

The human body is a piece of complex machinery that is constantly evolving. What served you well yesterday may be the very thing that brings you to a plateau tomorrow. If you’re working out on your own, you’ll struggle to understand why and try various ways to make it work again. Personal trainers, with their professional competence and know-how, can pinpoint faster what threw a spanner in the works and rejig your plan as necessary.

Here’s Something to Remember

You can if you want to but you don’t have to work with a personal trainer all the time. Think of it as enrolling for a course in fitness with our certified fitness coaches at Fitness First who can help you figure out some plans to get you going. When you feel you’ve learned enough to fly solo, you move on to working out independently. Later, as your fitness aims shift and you want an expert to help you get to those new goals, you can hire a personal trainer again.
